HSO Evenings Part I – Star Crossed: Romeo and Juliet & West Side Story
Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet and Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story show each of these composers at their melodic and dramatic best. The tale, predating Shakespeare, of “star-crossed lovers” caught in the throes of vengeful violence is unfortunately as modern now as ever. Gerrad Alex Taylor (Chesapeake Shakespeare Co.) and Jed Gaylin (HSO) will discuss these works in the context of Shakespeare and watch HSO’s performance from December 2014. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with registrants in advance of the program.
